“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.”-Stephen Hawking

Today we remember Stephen Hawking. The cutting-edge physicist explored such “cool stuff” as black holes and quantum mechanics!

Steven Hawking may be most famous for his book “A Brief History of Time,” which posits theories over the nature of our universe. The book introduced cosmology to pop culture while exploring universal forces, particles, and origin stories. Additionally, Hawking’s enjoyed tenure at Cambridge University for his accomplishments in mathematics and physics.

At an early age, Hawking was diagnosed with the life-threatening Lou Gehrig’s disease which would impair his motor functions, and later rob him of speech.
